     The Vernon Historical Society began in 1967. Since its beginning it has collected and preserved many items of local historic interest. The collection contains paintings and etchings of Charles Ethan Porter and Gustave Hoffman. On permanent display in the auditorium are the works of Dr, William Schneider, local physician and painter who passed away in 1984. 
     The Society has computerized its collection of books and has set up a library for public use. 
     The museum database can now be searched by the staff to provide visitors with listings of items in collection. 
     Published books by the Society include:

Let's Visit Rockville, by Alma Stieg
Learning from the Stones, by Jean Luddy
